Allah subhanho wa Taala says in a verse in Surah Taha in nanny and Allah, indeed it is I Allah. This is a verse that is in relation to the story of the Prophet of Allah. Mousavi. salatu salam. Musa alayhis salam, as we know his childhood, his formative years are in Egypt. And then one day when he accidentally killed an Egyptian man, he flees and he runs away from Egypt. And as he's lost and is looking for a place to go, he comes across a town called meridian. And they're in Meridian through a single act of kindness and a gesture of chivalry. Musa alayhis. Salaam is given asylum and he marries from that land. And he makes an agreement to stay there for eight to 10 years. After a lot
of time elapses, Musashi salami takes his family and he leaves Midian and as he's walking with his family in the darkness of the desert, not knowing where to go his last unassuming journey with toady Nara Musashi Salaam he sees a fire at the top of the mountain of a door. So he says to his family Padania, him cuckoo in the nest tonnara he says to his family, you wait here, I found some fire, gnarly tea coming. Have you ever seen an urge to Allah nary Buddha, perhaps I will go and those people that have lit this fire, I will ask them for advice. I will take directions from them. Or at the very least I will bring some of that fire so that we can use it and benefit from it. So Musa
alayhis salam on his own he goes to the top of the mountain have a tour. But that fire that he sees that is not a fire that has been kindled by man. It is not a group of people that are seeking warmth and shelter, but it is the light that Allah subhanho wa Taala placed that Musa alayhis salaam is instructed to take off
sandles surfliner alakina Kabila demopolis ito Musa, take off your sandals because you're in the holy valley of Torah. Musa alayhis salam is then addressed by Allah subhana wa tada and Allah Zilla gel at this moment will make this man Musa one of the greatest prophets and mightiest messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala. How does a large syllogism begin that interaction? What is the first thing that Mousavi Salaam is told to realize and acknowledge so that he can become a prophet of Allah? Allah subhanho wa Taala says to him in any and Allahu La ilaha illa Allah for bootmii salata directly, he says, almost and indeed it is I Allah, Nan has the right to be worshipped except me.
None has the right to be worshipped except me. So worship Me and establish the prayer for my remembrance. The first thing that musante salaam, knows and realizes about Allah is the oneness and the greatness, the magnificence and the majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
When you look throughout the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala stresses this issue over and over again, time and time again. Some of the scholars are of the opinion that over a third of the Quran deals only with a single topic. And that is the topic of Allah subhanho wa Taala. A large zoologist speaks about himself. And he describes himself and it gives us His names and his attributes, his powers and his ability subhana wa Tada. A lot of zildjian mentions for us His signs, and the different forms and shapes that they take all of this, because of the importance of the single topic, knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because when you have that knowledge of a large religion, and then you're able to
transform it into your daily life, you're able to transform it in your, in your worship, you're able to transform it in the way that you deal with the people around you. You're able to transform it so that when trials and tests, problems and difficulties face you, you know what to do and how to react to those issues. When you transform that knowledge of Allah into your practical daily life, it is one of the greatest, if not the greatest blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is why the prophets of alarming salatu salam, they would focus on this issue. Musa alayhis salam, this is the beginning of his message, our own Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when a larger module reveals
those first verses to him in the cave of Hira in Mecca. It is about knowing Allah, knowing the importance of a loss of Hannah mattarella knowing the power of a lion is creation, and what a large religion teaches. The prophets of Allah would actively learn more about Allah subhanho wa Taala. They would want to know more about Allah. So you have the example of Ibrahim Ali Salim one of the greatest prophets of Allah. And Allah mentioned in Surah Baqarah What does he say? with Paula Ibrahim surah be really key for to
Allah, allow me to see how you give life to the Death to the dead.
Man. So Allah said to him, don't you have a man Don't you believe in this, Paula Bella, wanna kill me? He said yes, I believe, but I want to increase make stronger my email. So Allah subhanaw taala tells him to take four birds and to slaughter them, to cut them up into pieces and to place a part of each of those birds on two different mountains and then to call them and the large soldier would resurrect those birds and they would come flying to Brahimi de Sena. Ibraheem alehissalaam wants to know more about the power of Allah. So some of the most virtuous and greatest verses of the Quran, they speak about Allah Surah Fatiha is a surah that Allah ayatul kursi it is a verse about Allah
surah to the class which equals a third of the Quran. It is a surah dedicated to knowing Allah subhana wa Taala a large village of tells us in Surah to roam in a beautiful passage. These passages are often repetitive in the Quran. Allah azza wa jal tells us about his signs and his powers. So that when you walk outside when you wake up in the morning, when you're busy in your day, and you see these things all all around you, as you do on a daily basis. You remember, the role of this is by the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the creation of a law and law says women a yachtie and Hanukkah coming to Robin from ADA and timber. Sharon. Sharon, from the signs of a law is
not a law created you from just and now you are a nation mankind a whole nation, whole species of people who are dispersed across the earth. Amina Yachty and Hala Paula come in and fusi come as Raja liters como la Hawa, jalapeno Kuma, what the Torah and from the signs of Allah is after you
See all of these people and you go back home from the signs of allies that he created from you your spouse's. So that may you may live together with one another, and a lot of peace between you mercy and love. These are from the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when you're at home and you see your family, you see your children, you realize that that is from the waste of Allah subhana wa Tada. That is a sign that a large religion would allow two strangers who don't know each other, they're probably not religion, but by a single act of signing the contract, they become the closest of people to one another. And then their children are more dear to them. And they would sacrifice
more for them than for any other human upon this planet. That's a sign of a large religion. Woman it
was Tina, Chico and Monica. And from the signs of Eliza when you go out the creation, the heavens and the earth, that is from Allah subhana wa tada and the diversity that you see in color. And in language, it is from the signs of Allah. Just in this mystery. If you look around, we have people have so many different shades of color. People who speak so many different languages come from so many different backgrounds and ethnicities, but all of them are together sitting with one another. That is from the science of a large religion. wamena Yachty menemukan belaid wanna have to come in fugly and from the signs of Allah is when you see you sleep by day and by night, you sleep by day
and by night. And you see the grace of a man is bouncing back from the signs of Allah. When you go to work and you try to analyze risk. You try to earn a living, you're outside some people work during the day and they sleep during the night. Others work during the night and they sleep during the day. All of this is from the signs of Allah wamena de como como tomar una zero Mina Santa Emma for Yoshi Baba demo t Ha. And from the signs of Allah is the thunder and the lightning that inspire hope, but they also inspire fear, hope in the sense that rain will come the fear because of the terror of thunder and lightning as an alarm xojo causes the heavens to open and rain to descend upon
you. And he brings the earth back to life after its death. That is from the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala women
who want to be Emily and from the signs of Allah is that everything that happens in the heavens and the earth, it is by the permission and the command of Allah subhana wa Tada. So a large syllogism over and over again he describes himself and this methodology that is so important and integral to the Quran. It is something which our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would spend a lot of time and effort also dispensing to his companions. The Prophet told us on a low value system as the Hadith or abdomen or bass or the Allahumma. Mr. Malhotra separate one out in a silver cup the Rahmani della teen Vika Deacon.
Speaking about Allah majesty, his magnificence. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the example of the seven heavens and the seven, the seven heavens and the seven Earths in the hand of Allah subhanho wa Taala is like the example of a mustard seed. If it wants to be pleased in your hand. That is the scale of Allah subhana wa Tada. That is how great and magnificent Allah is. So when you say Allahu Akbar Allah is the Greatest. This is what you're referring to. A lot of greatness over his creation, almost greatness in the perfection of his names and its attributes his powers and his ability subhanho wa Taala the hadith of Abdullah bin Ahmad radi Allahu anhu man, sorry Muslim, the
prophet said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Yoda Allahu sumati da de da de PUE Allah, Allah subhanho episode where poo and Malik Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment, he will grasp the heavens and the earth, and they will be in his hands subhanho wa Taala and he will proclaim and he will say I am Allah and Allah without stretching his fingers and he will clench them and he will say, I am the king of the labor and I'm gonna set them and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was standing on his minbar narrating this hadith. He was so passionate and he was so overcome by emotion that the whole minbar began to shake with him. To the extent that I thought to myself that
the member is going to fall over it's going to topple over with the profits on the law while he was selling them. In another Hadith, the Hadith also in a Muslim brand authority of Abu Salah Shanti rhodiola one, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the La Jolla named William barilla. Who
just stole your photo. Your photo la Yamato lady
she Jabu nor
locash effect, learn how to how to a G Manta in a bizarre Roman Holiday. He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Indeed Allah doesn't sleep, nor is it befitting for him to sleep. So when you need something, you're in need, you want something you need to make dua you need to turn to someone, turn to Allah. Allah doesn't sleep, known as a befitting for His Majesty that he should sleep. The Prophet continued, and he said, Allah is the one who descends and he brings down decree, and he raises it. The actions of the night are taken to Allah before the actions of the day. And actions of the day are taken to Allah before the actions of that following night. His veil, it is all light, if
allow us to remove only a small portion of that veil, that is radiance and His Majesty and His light, it would burn everything that it touched. That is a loss of Hannon wattana. So here today, 2016 really mustard berming. We're sitting here on this autumn Friday, all of the all of us have come across these verses of the Koran. We've heard of these Hadith, we know what it means to worship Allah, or at least we understand, or we think we understand what it means. But taking that knowledge and transforming it to your every single day, the life that is where the challenge lies. That is the test of Eman that you don't just know the theory, but you're able to take it and put it into
practice. So we have issues. We have problems with our families, we have problems with our health, some of us are in financial difficulty. And then we have the wider problems that we see in society, Islamophobia, extremism, terrorism, the way that the Muslims are being treated, Brexit and the economy, people worried about their wealth and their money, pennies and pounds and so on and so forth. All of these challenges every single challenge, the way to overcome them is through the knowledge of Allah subhana wa Tada. Because if you know your Lord, you know Allah, you know his names, you don't need attributes, you know, his powers and his abilities. You learn about Allah and
what Allah does, and how Allah how our laws laws work upon this universe, then you know how to overcome each and every single one of those trials. And the largest religion has given us examples of so many of them in the Quran. So yes, we're going through a recession. Yes, the economy is tough. Yes, the pound is falling. And so we're worried about our money, but at the same time and we look at the names of Allah and the attributes of Allah, we know that Allah is a rasa. He is the one who provides Allah is Allah hub. He is the one who bestows we know from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Allah azzawajal has written for each and every single one of us,
our risk, our provision, it is written for us. So even if that provision was to be in the depths of the oceans, that Allah subhanho wa Taala would bring it to you one way or another. So we were we earn a living, we seek out that risk in a halal way. And through matching those means with tawakkol Allah subhanho wa Taala the two come together, recession or no recession. So when you come to the masjid, and the brother's going to announce, after Salah, give charity, donate to the masjid, but shaytan will come and he will say no, no, we're in recession. Okay, even if you're going to give it give her a pound, don't give notes give coins. But we know as Muslims that Allah subhana wa Taala is
a reserved a large region has written all of this already. We have problems with our health, like au values Sam didn't know. But Allah azzawajal is a Shafi. Yes, we'll go to the doctors and we'll take our appointments, and we'll go and take all of those halaal steps and means, but a larger vision is the one who gives cure. And our Prophet told us a long while he will sell them that Allah never caused an illness to descend, except that he paced with it. It's cool. We may not know the cure, but the cure is there along with the humans. That's our religion. So now that you know that aspect of the power of allies, names and its attributes, your outlook towards that issue is completely
different. Well, hello Majora, every single issue that you're faced with, take that knowledge that you learn from the Quran. Take that knowledge that you have a loss of Hannah mozzarella, and transform it to your life in a practical way. This is something that we need to do and it's something we need to instill within our children. Most of us here, we don't really know Allah subhanho wa Taala the way that we should. We haven't really spent time learning about Allah subhana wa Tada. We know that Allah has names and attributes. We know there's 99 of them. We may even know some of them by memory and know the meaning and translation of some of those names. But what does it
actually mean? When Allah says that he's a Rama? Mama says that he's a Rahim when Allah says that he's an American produce these names that we come across that we hear in the Koran. We hear the Imam reciting in the Salah. What does it actually mean? That step that effort, that is what the prophets of Allah will do.
That's what they would spend their time doing. Learning about this. That's what they would spend their time teaching their followers. I will religion Allah subhanho wa Taala has made us from amongst the very few nations and religions, if there is any other besides us that we know so much detail about Allah subhana wa tada alaric xojo didn't just say, worship me. And then he gave us no other information. We don't know what law is. We don't know his name is actually which one Omar does his powers and his abilities we don't know anything. In fact, it is the opposite. A large portion of the Quran is about Allah. There are countless Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
reached out to us about our Lord and kalita subhana wa Taala that knowledge is there. Because through that knowledge, you come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the sooner that you know of the Quran, many of them speak about Allah subhana wa Tada. They speak about his powers and his attributes, the sutras that you read, like sort of, on a Friday night before you go to sleep, those sources and passages of the Koran that the Prophet told us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we should focus on them and concentrate on them on a daily basis on a weekly basis. These are the parts of the Quran that you read, they speak about Allah. And that's why the focus is on them. That's why
you're told to concentrate on them. Because you're supposed to read those sources and understand them. Take that knowledge of Allah, and then implement it into your lives. This is something that we're missing. And it is from the greatest traps of shapen that he comes in, he turns people away from the single door. Don't learn about Allah. Oh, you already know who Allah is. So you have a person who thinks he knows about Allah woman that you pray, and they say Allahu Akbar, they don't have a clue what they're saying, don't understand the single word of what is in that Salah? Yes, they know Allah and the worship online in sha Allah that a good Muslim, but they haven't spent any
time and effort, learning about the names and attributes of Allah, learning about what a larger Winton has said in the Quran. So shavon comes, and he tells people to stay away, the way the church came upon this earth ship when he first came upon this earth, it was because of ignorance that people had regarding a loss of data. When people didn't realize who Allah was. They didn't understand the laws, names and attributes. So shaytan came to the people of a generation before know how he sent them. He told them to make items, because it would remind them of pious people who have passed away those people not understanding or knowing any better lack of knowledge, lack of
learning, they built those idols, they made them they constructed them, and shape and left them until the generation died. And the next one came and died until even people didn't realize why those idols were there in the first place. And then he came to them and he said, these idols are for worship. These are your gods. So those people didn't think this idol doesn't eat, doesn't drink, doesn't speak, doesn't move. Such was the ignorance that they would go on. They would worship them besides Allah, like the people of Quraysh they weren't stupid people. They weren't people that didn't have intelligence. About Jehovah we call about jail. In jail. He Leah was known as
the father of wisdom and knowledge. But when that knowledge didn't bring him closer to Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called him, Abu Jamal, the father of ignorance. So those people were intelligent people, they were businessmen. They were people who had wealth and they had money. But when it came to this issue of worshipping Allah shavon came, and he and he made them so befuddled that he didn't even realize that they would build a times a statue an idol, out of food, they would make it unconstructed with their own hands, dates, and barley and wheat. And then when famine and drought would come, and they wouldn't have any food left, they would go to that same God
that they would worship and they would eat it, they would consume it because otherwise you die. This was their religion, their understanding of Allah, Allah Subhana, Allah in the Quran, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the cinema. They draw our attention to this issue, and it is at the crux of all issues. We have many problems in our community, and we need many things. We need better Islamic schools. We need people in different professions, we need the community to come together and become a single body upon the truth, many, many things. But at the crux of all of those issues, is this one central issue. We don't even know Allah subhanho wa Taala the way that we should. We don't
know how to transform that knowledge of Allah into our daily lives. So focusing on this issue may seem and shavon will make it seem insignificant, but it is a it's reality. The most important and the crux of all matters barakallahu li walakum phylloquinone was soon one of our new jacobina female

This is one of the Jim has is one of the opportunities that we have in the year to address the younger members of our congregation, our younger brothers and sisters who are on the halftime holidays. And it is a rare opportunity that we have that we have parents and we have their children, all of you together on a single place. And that message that I want to give to you in this hotel on this Friday, is this message that all of us together as parents and as children and parents towards their children. This issue of learning about Allah and seeking knowledge of Allah subhana wa tada is extremely important. We As parents, we often look at our children, we look at the challenges we face
in society. And one of the greatest concerns that we have is how to preserve their Muslim identity, how to make them constructive citizens of this country, people who can give back to society and so on and so forth. But all the time preserving their identity, knowing who they are being proud of their Islam, worshipping Allah. But they will only be able to do this if they understand who Allah subhanho wa Taala is why it is that they stand in front of a large soldier, not just simply because their father or mother took them to the masjid, or because their parents who say pray and they would pray, not really knowing understanding, that's our responsibility to ingrain. And to place within
their hearts, their understanding of who Allah subhana wa Taala is, and we have resources available. There are ways that this is done. But it will take from your commitment and it will take from your time. Make this knowledge of who Allah subhanaw taala is something that your children can understand his practicalities, don't just sit with them with the three categories of the heat and speak to them, like you're speaking to university level students will just simply read a book like you would, as a bedtime story. Think about what a large religion is saying in the Quran. Learn how to present that material in a way that will actually benefit them and make your real life. So when they go out
and they have a problem at school, or they go out and they have a problem with their studies or with their friends or whatever it may be. Or you have a problem as a family, and you bring them together, connected back to Allah subhanho wa Taala the scholars of Islam and their children, when they would be naughty when they would misbehave. They wouldn't ingrain within them the fear of their parents, but they were ingrained within them the fear of Allah, what you did was wrong. But you should be wrong and you should be sorry not because your father may come and shelter you or your mother may come and rebuke you. You are wrong, because of loss of panatela knows you're wrong. So even though
no one else may see you, your father, your mother, your brother, your sister, no one else can see you. But Allah is unseen. Allah is all hearing Allah is all knowing. So in this way, as they learn about the loss of Hamilton and they become connected to a larger region, it is more than just simply do's and don'ts, but they will learn to turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I leave you with this final Hadith with his young cousin, Abdullah Abdullah basadi Allahumma the son of his uncle, one of the closest and dearest people to him, or the loved one who wanna be the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ingrained and instilled within him.
The knowledge of Allah subhana wa tada Abdullah, if you want to ask, ask of Allah, if you want to seek assistance, seek assistance from Allah know that if all of the people of the universe which unite and come together to benefit you in something, they could not do so except with a loss permission. And if they all gathered and united to harm you with something, they wouldn't be able to do so except by a loss permission. This is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told a boy of eight 910 11 years old, and that same young boy would come grow up and he would become one of the greatest scholars amongst the companions. And one of the greatest scholars of Islam. We ask Allah
subhana wa tada on this special day of fighting that a large soldier brings us closer to him. And that also gives us knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah, and olara xojo makes us people who know his names and attributes. And that allows xojo makes our hearts steadfast upon this religion, that He guides us and He guides our children and our families under Allah subhanaw taala keeps away from us all types of evil trials and problems and difficulties with colossal panatela to make the situation of the Muslims easy, under a large social brings relief to all of those who are distressed that alarm xojo kills the ill from amongst us, and that a large religion relieves our hardships
